Rhubarb is a fickle vegetable; it looks like celery, but has a sweeter taste and light texture. People don’t know whether to cook savory dishes with it, or make pies or tarts. Either way, it’s a food worth exploring. Rhubarb has been cultivated for thousands of years, and was originally used by the Chinese to cure common ailments. Back to point: I had the opportunity to experience a phenomenal dessert the other evening at a dinner party… it was a Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp with Cardamon and Nutmeg Topping. Freshly out of the oven it melted in my mouth, and was the perfect ending to a great meal.
